Today was the sad memorial day for the dead from the U.S. Navy ship. How dare we not feel honor in placing our hand over our heart and saying the Pledge of Allegiance to flag of the United States of America, for which these young people gave their lives protecting us?

To the caller worried that Juneau has been subject to prejudice because everyone else in the nation has a road and we don't, I was wondering if this proud conspiracy theory could give me directions to Bethel, Unalaska, Dillingham, Cordova, Kodiak, Wrangell or Sitka, etc.

If your teenagers or children play or hang out at Glacier Valley Elementary School, ask them if they saw or if they were involved with the planters across the street being kicked over and destroyed.
